Advice & Tips: It was worth a try as I was having generally worsening symptoms without any new lesions showing up my MRI. After a blood test showed I was low, I started the supliment right before long trip (24 hours of flying). For the next three weeks, I had far more energy than I would have thought possible. I have continued since I got home, and I've had far more energy to excercise and have had less cognative fog which I associate with being tired.

Advice & Tips: Initially took cod liver oil to obtain more vitamin D in my body, to increase effectiveness of prolotherapy injections I was receiving at the time. After injection treatment ended, took for muscle & joint pain. Intermittently stopped taking cod liver oil from time to time, due to IBS flare-ups.
